Two season sequels to the live-action adaptation of Hikaru Nakamura’s slice of life comedy manga series Saint Young Men are currently being made. A new trailer and visual have just been dropped for the second season.
Season two will premiere on the Japanese video streaming service Piccoma TV on June 1 and will be released in Japanese theatres from June 6.

In the new teaser trailer we see Jesus (Ken’ichi Matsuyama) and Buddha (Shōta Sometani) arrive at the otaku holy land that is Akihabara. The series director Yuichi Fukuda announced on Twitter that the new season will surpass the the first season even further in terms of comedy and entertainment.

Akihabara is located in Tokyo and is every otaku’s dream location for its many shops shelving electronic goods such as games consoles, cosplay shops, anime and manga stores, game centres and more. Just what are Jesus and Buddha about to get up to?

It was also revealed that Japanese actor Yuki Yamada will join the film as guest cast. He will play the part of a police officer who tries to seize a loitering Jesus.
